First let me say that I loved all the challenges that were offered. I found time to finish about half of them. In the process I tried some new techniques and I also dug out some stamp sets that have not been used in quite some time. That's always fun.
I chose the card that I am featuring here tonight becasue it is one that I was ready to upload as a finished card when I looked at it again and decided that it still needed something. There just was something that didn't look right. I couldn't see it on the card itself for some reason, but when I looked at it on the computer I noticed that there seemed to be a big empty space in the lower right corner.
Because of the 45 minute time limit on making cards for the challenges I didn't have a lot of time to figure out a fix so I thought a moment or two and came up with something to try. Fortunately it worked. I rescanned the card and uploaded it with only a few seconds to spare in the 45 minutes.
Before I show you my fix let me tell you a bit more about the card itself. I was designed and made for the Alice In Wonderland challenge. All the challenges were based on books. This is what we were given for this challenge:
"I’ve heard recently that Johnny Depp and Tim Burton are going to team up to make a movie of “Alice in Wonderland”. My favorite passage from Alice in Wonderland is this:
So in tribute to this passage, your challenge is to make a card using pearl-ex, twinkling H2Os, lumiere or scallops (circle, square, whatever scallops you like)."
That was it. I created a shimmery water picture using pearl-ex, twinkling H2Os, and lumiere to paint the image of the crab and then sprinkles a glittery gold embossing powder over it all. If I had nestibilities I would have used an outer scalloped circle behind the stamped image but I don't have them so I had to settle for another plain circle out of brushed gold card stock. I placed it all on a background made using one of my cuttlebug embossing folders that sort of looked like bubbles in water to me. Finally I added a Birthday Wish also on brushed gold card stock.
So back to my final fix. Simply three small rhinestones glues in a row. Maybe not the perfect fix but one that allowed me to finish in 45 minutes.
Now I will go to bed and in the next few days I will have lots to share. After stamping like a mad stamper all yesterday; designing and making 7 cards. This evening I went to a meeting with some of my SU stamping cohorts in the area and made 8 more projects. 7 cards and one post it note holder. Plus I still have more fun from the fall craft kit to share........See you later!
